This standard production range of 230/240 Volt 50HZ Permanent Capacitor Single Phase Electric Motors are suitable for Low Starting Torque applications such as Fans, Blowers, Centrifugal Pumps, and some compressors which only require a low starting torque of 50-68% of full load torque which is typical depending on the output and frame size.

We can supply various European manufactured Brands as well as Brands manufactured in the Far East covering the size range 0.18KW(0.25HP) up to 3.0KW (4HP) generally in 2 & 4 with a smaller 6 pole range as detailed in the 14 sizes listed. We can also provide a Manufacturing Service to cater for Compact Frame types (Same power in next size smaller frame)and to suit customer individual requirements such as alternative Voltages, longer or special shafts and flanges for minimum order quantity of 10 pieces.

Single Phase electric motors have a capacitor connected in series with the run winding, therefore the motor is always drawing a constant current irrespective of mechanical load. When the motor is not under load this residual current is dissipated in the form of heat. Therefore Single phase electric motors should always be used at or near ‘full load’ so that the energy is converted into mechanical ‘work’ and not into heat.
